Global Vision ... Local Impact
In the mid-1990s, when John Bordynuik, founder of JBI, Inc., was working at the Ontario Legislature he began to notice a trend: an increase in plastic waste resulting from growing plastic generation ... without recycling. Thinking forward, as he so often does, he saw the seed of an enormous problem looming.
In the ensuing 15 years, the problem John foresaw has manifested. Because of the new "disposable mentality" that came with plastic containers, we now are navigating the fallout of an enormous waste plastic problem, on a global scale. It's complex, it's far-reaching and it's intimately tied to politics and economics.
The nugget of the problem that John had been thinking about all these years was what to do with the plastic waste we now generate – in the US alone, over 31 million tons a year are generated with only approximately 8% being recycled (2010).
Over the years, there have been various solutions proposed – diversion, burning, etc.; however, nothing to date has proven to be a truly effective or environmentally responsible solution to the burgeoning global landfill problem. In fact, many existing solutions have been just the opposite: costly, energy inefficient or equally as harmful to the environment as the plastic itself. It's only now, with the Plastic2Oil technology, that there is a solution that is not only economically viable, but that is remarkably simple and "green" as well.
John Bordynuik is on a personal mission: to help rid the world of its waste plastic problem.
